I took Pinterest a step further.... I invited my homeschooled teens to Pinterest. They set up boards with similar title headings, although they made electives all separate boards-- for my daughter: dancing, costume design, fashion design, doll fashion design and caretaking, sewing basics, video editing, stop motion animation, etc. My son has programming, game creation, animation, drafting, video editing, special effects creation.... of course they have Grammar, creative writing prompts, composition tips and resources, maths, sciences, psych/sociology, anthropology, current events....
I told them now they can prove that "browsing time" is educational, by pinning their websurfing journeys into categories they are making a virtual scrapbook. Organizing what they've found helps them find it again, helps them find others who share their interests, and helps them find new resources in interest categories.
